Please do prove me wrong, but I can't imagine archery had much of an affect on the Lord's turf.

I liked the bit about their weekly wage bill being more for contractors than for players........ :)

We can laugh all we want, however they have a purpose built football stadium whilst we have a mechano disgrace that we don't own.

I hate them and our owners

Is it really purse strings tightening at Arsenal? Most Arsenal I speak to say they had the money but Wenger wasn't spending it.

But yeah. Chelsea and Man City being taken over by oligarchs hasn't helped them

Sad thing is after our move I think a trip to selhurst park is a treat
Was talking to mate the other day about having a away ticket for QPR back in the ‘90s which actually stated “diabolical view” on the ticket rather than restricted view.

Also the away end at Selhurst, you cannot see a bloody thing if you’re higher than a certain row due to that TV gantry. Plus I’m amazed how their snack bar / beverage area has passed health & safety over the years because loads of times Ive thought I’d end up in a crush to get to the bar.

I’m not dumming down the romanticism about old school grounds, just stating some of them could be bloody dangerous at times.

I also agree with others that modern football stadia offeres a largely sanitised experience. I can guarantee Spurs fans will hate the new adapted ground.

We even moaned when they put the Rio stand up back at the Boleyn. A lot of people said the atmosphere died and, wait for it, it was too far away from the pitch. :D

I remember one game at the back of the chicken run in the Boleyn with a pillar in front so had to stand but then also had to duck because of the roof and the angle - as views went it was utterly absurd. (good atmosphere tho)

I’m genuinely shocked such a view meets the standards set by the premier league. You might as well not be at the game, as you haven’t got a ****ing clue what’s happening.

Which in turn creates overcrowding in the lower section.... because everybody in the upper bit tries to squeeze in lower.

The worst away stand in the league by a country mile, and that even includes the 4 mile hike to the top of St. James's Park.

Apparently the French wanted it called off but the ref took a bung from Henry V.

Be interesting to see what 'type' of supporter they fill the 'kop' up with. It isn't cheap to get a season ticket in there, with some areas around the middle costing more than £2k per season.

Spurs could well fall foul of the same issue we have seen where older / less passionate / family orientated fans (who would like to sit and watch the game and join in with the occasional rendition of 'Oh Whennnnnn theeeee....'), get mixed in with the more vocal and passionate of fans who (who want to stand, sing and shout abuse all game).

I think we got it horribly wrong with our move and can only see the same happening to them.
